Weekend: Some Sun, Rain, Humidity and Aridity

A tale of two seasons for the weekend. Summer & fall with latter taking center stage first thanks to High Pressure close by. This area of High pressure begins to leave by Sunday allowing our next cold front to head this way. Getting ahead of myself…..Saturday offers ideal late summer/early fall weather with a crisp, cool morning followed by afternoon temps in the mid 70s. Sunshine is abundant to start the day but a few more clouds show up by late afternoon. Looks fantastic for all sorts of outdoor plans…..golf, kids soccer games, Sox/Yanks game, beaches? (yes!) and of course:

Go get them apples!

Sunday we see that weather system—a cool front–that slowly moves into New England. Here is what the weather map probably looks like midday Sunday:

You see the cool front….you see the clouds (grey coloring) and some green blobs. Those blobs are showers….notice how it’s not a massive green blob over southern New England? Sunday is not a washout, rather, a day that offers a lot of clouds and a few showers at times. It looks like the risk of those scattered showers is there the entire day even though it won’t rain all day long. Outdoor plans can get accomplished, just have the rain gear on stand-by. That weather system will also pump humidity back into New England so plan on a muggy, mild Sunday. As for the Pat-Dolphins game, it looks like this:

Pats by 10.

Looking into early next week the potential is there for some tropical downpours in New England. What could happen (right now I’d peg it around 40-50% of it happening) is that front (the same front from Sunday) grabs some moisture from whatever is left of Tropical Depression Julia:

and drags it (the moisture) up into New England and we get upwards of an inch of rain. Even if we don’t get the inch of rain, Monday does look showery & humid. Less humid weather returns along with sunshine by Tuesday of next week. Have a great weekend!
